Combine all stew ingredients in a pot. Cover with beer. Bring to a boil and simmer for 2 to 2½ hours. Add water if necessary during cooking time.


Sift together flour and baking powder. Cut in lard until crumbly. Dissolve salt in a very small amount of water. Add water to flour mixture and stir just enough to form dough. Shape dough into a ball and roll out on a floured surface to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into 1 inch squares. Cover surface of stew with squares 30 minutes before end of cooking time. Check seasoning.
